Record-breaking summer for Dutton Cuisine’s ‘Pig Restaurant and Bar’

Ian Dutton, owner of The Pig restaurant and bar in Windermere, has declared this summer its ‘best ever’.  Takings at the popular and unique establishment on Crescent Road, in the heart of the village, are up 15% on the same period in 2017, with August up 8%, despite a slow April.  Ian took a massive gamble when he opened the 40-seater Pig in March 2016, following a refurbishment which took just five months and cost more than £400,000.  With more than 70% of its menu offering based on ‘pork’, it remained to be seen whether the fickle consumer would get on-board with his unusual vision.
